    Seems to me like your level of concern should be linked to the likelihood that your image would be used for a deepfake. Are you famous? Is there a particular reason your image would be used over someone else’s?
  2. Hey Penzo, are you vaccinated? I got it in October but it wasn’t terrible, which I attribute to the vaccine. Don’t know what variant it was though; Omicron didn’t catch on in the US until December I think, so either it was Delta or one of the lingering older ones. In my region the Omicron curve was steeply up & steeply down, and it was ‘over’ relatively quickly. Good luck!
  3. I sw IM and Astral Projection together around the same time in Seattle. Even though I like AP’s music much more, IM was more interesting live.
  4. Beat detection is specifically for audio. MIDI files contain tempo info, but of course I’m opening it with the same software I created it with, so no surprise that it just works for me.
  5. I mean the tempo is embedded in the .mid file. When I open that file, the tempo is set automatically to 138. I suppose it’s possible that my software (Digital Performer) embeds that detail in a way other software doesn’t recognize.
  6. Time consuming huh...all right, here you go: http://www.veracohr.com/Psynews_Track_V.mid I had it at 138 BPM, and in my software the tempo is in the MIDI file. Is that not the case for other people? Obviously that's the tempo I thought sounded best for it, but anyone can try it in any tempo to see how it works.
  7. That’s funny because I’ve been listening to a lot of acid techno lately. I got into Spotify & I wanted stuff I don’t have on MP3 so I looked up Chris Liberator (I’ve got a couple records) & now I listen to acid techno playlists in the car a lot. It may not have evolved, but it’s still awesome! Regarding Psynews coming up first in Google searches: not surprising I guess, but don’t forget about “filter bubbles”. Google has their algorithms too, so anyone with a long history of visiting Psynews is likely to see it high in search results.
  8. So THAT is the prerequisite one has to believe in order to consider the rest of the nonsense you mentioned? Time to step away from the internet.
  9. Chi-A.D. Eyes of Gaia. I’m torn between not liking fullon, and the fact that this is good fullon. Then guitars come in and I recoil in horror. Don’t get me wrong, I’m a big rock & metal fan, I just don’t like them in psy. Then comes some neo-goa type stuff and it’s better. This album leaves me conflicted.
  10. Did I do what I wanted in life? Hardly. I guess I had some good times in my 20s but I wasn’t as social as most people. I haven’t accomplished anything. Haven’t made any music in a long time. I’ve got various electronic projects in the works, but at this point in life I pretty much just feel like I’m waiting around to die.
  11. I moved this post here from the “Best of the Noughties” thread. That thread is about rankings from a user poll of releases 2000-2019, not for promo of new releases.
  12. I renamed the files with underscores instead of spaces. See if that works. http://www.veracohr.com/Psynews_Track_(Veracohr_Basic).mp3 http://www.veracohr.com/Psynews_Track_(Veracohr_Basic).zip
  13. Here's something I started several years ago and never got anywhere with. I don't know if there's anything worthwhile there but it's the best offering I have right now. The linked ZIP file has a standard MIDI file, a WAV file of the audio below, a WAV file with one of the tracks that isn't in the MIDI file, and a text file. http://www.veracohr.com/Psynews_Track_(Veracohr_Basic).mp3 http://www.veracohr.com/Psynews_Track_(Veracohr_Basic).zip
  14. I’d pitch in a contribution. I haven’t completed any music in a long time & I’ve always had trouble with inspiration, but contributing a part seems just right!
  15. I’m reading Oathbringer, the third book of the Stormlight Archive by Brandon Sanderson. Pretty interesting world, good story!

    A while back my girlfriend got obsessed with Daft Punk’s album Rand Access Memories & she came across this other song featuring them: It’s more or less pop, although iTunes lists it under R&B. It’s pretty good. It also led us to another good song by The Weekend:
  17. Well it sparked a discussion about psytrance, so it seems like the appropriate forum to me.
  18. Sorry, but I can't see an option to change it TO the mobile version on my laptop, so I can't figure out how to change it back. I would assume the forum detects the operating system and chooses mobile/desktop for you, so it's pretty weird if its choosing the wrong one. What browser are you using?
  19. Oh man, I remember the gnashing of teeth over triplets! Like they were an affront to human decency.
  20. I removed most of the Hahas but I’m leaving it where it is. The report system is the best way to alert us to something that needs attention.
  21. For fuck's sake guys! Couldn't you limit it to 100 "Haha"s instead of a million?
  22. The Mad Old Ones and Family of Light titles were assigned manually.
  23. I recently delved back into an old favorite: the Dragonlance series. It’s based on a D&D campaign from the 80’s and was more or less the first fantasy books I read. It’s not as sophisticated or immersive as more recent fantasy series but it’s been fun revisiting those characters.
  24. You know people are bored in quarantine when they revive 9 year old threads about whether fire is hot or cold.
  25. Of course, that’s why we’re going to such extreme measures to slow the spread. We have no pre-existing immunity. I imagine there’s an element of chance to one’s ability to fight it, that’s natural selection/evolution right in front of our eyes. Risk factors surely aren’t the only factors. I just read a story from a guy who has it, and while it was written in a way to make you laugh, it sounded horrible. He said he hadn’t been that sick since he had meningitis.
